Microcenter has also listed several NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 custom graphics cards with prices starting at $1200 US & up to $1550 US.

Thirteen custom NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 series GPUs appear on MicroCenter's website, but consumers may have to purchase in-person

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 custom models pricing appears between $1199.99 to $1549.99, but none are available online. A total of thirteen different GPUs are listed from manufacturers such as ASUS, ZOTAC, MSI, GIGABYTE, and PNY. The new cards listed by the retailer include the following:

Gigabyte, ASUS, and PNY share the spot for the lowest-priced offering of the new RTX 4080 series graphics cards, while ASUS holds the single place for the most expensive offering with their ROG Strix OC model.

The one noticeable fact from all users looking at the listings is the "UNAVAILABLE ONLINE" notification for the thirteen new graphics cards. Sometimes retailers do this as a placeholder for the latest products before release but are not used as often with the words "CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE" in their place.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16 GB 'Official' Specifications

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16 GB graphics card will utilize a cut-down AD103-300 GPU configuration with 9,728 cores or 76 SMs enabled of the total 84 units whereas the previous configuration offered 80 SMs or 10,240 cores. While the full GPU comes packed with 64 MB of L2 cache and up to 224 ROPs, the RTX 4080 would end up with 48 MB of L2 cache and lower ROPs too due to its cut-down design. The card is expected to be based on the PG136/139-SKU360 PCB. The graphics card is said to offer a peak clock rate of 2505 MHz.

As for memory specs, the GeForce RTX 4080 features 16 GB GDDR6X capacities that will be adjusted at 22.5 Gbps speeds across a 256-bit bus interface. This will provide up to 720 GB/s of bandwidth. This is still a tad bit slower than the 760 GB/s bandwidth offered by the RTX 3080 since it comes with a 320-bit interface but a lowly 10 GB capacity. To compensate for the lower bandwidth, NVIDIA could be integrating a next-gen memory compression suite to make up for the 256-bit interface.

Is it possible that MicroCenter will require consumers wanting to purchase the newest custom GeForce RTX 4080 GPUs from their favorite manufacturer to come to the store, especially since we are in the early holiday season with many retailers offering sales presently? Or is it only listed that way as a placeholder for when the cards officially launch on November 16th?

MicroCenter may also attempt to sell the above graphics cards in special bundles closer to the day after Thanksgiving, also known as "Black Friday," with "Cyber Monday" appearing the following week. We have seen board makers agree that retailers create bundles for sale, so the concept is not abnormal.
